The furious return in first The Fate of the Furious trailer & poster

12.11.2016

The FAST AND FURIOUS franchise seems to be the only franchise that gets bigger with age. Ever since the fourth outing in 2009 the series has seen a resurgence with fans, with 2015’s FURIOUS 7 racking in $1.5 billion, becoming the sixth biggest movie of all time. So of course there’s an eighth movie on the way, and despite a head-scratching title, THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, it's gearing up to keep the money train moving…all before that train is crashed into by a series of street-racing cars. That kind of action is exactly what we can expect as evidenced by the new trailer below!

Embrace the testosterone!

In addition to the trailer we got the first teaser poster for the flick, which is the exact opposite in tone of the trailer, hinting the movie will have much more doom, gloom and thoughtful staring out of windows than we expected. As for the footage I've never been a big FURIOUS fan, and this movie looks like it will do little to change that. However, I was a little surprised to see they will be going down a different route by having Vin Diesel go against the team. Granted, it just gives them more reason to add "family" to all the advertisements. Bright side is that when Diesel says it for the tenth time we all get a free sandwich.

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS will blow up a theater near you April 14.

This looks pathetic.... coming from a big fan of this franchise

I'm sure it'll deliver on the action, but for the most part these movies have always been more than that. 5 and even 6 were strong examples of how great a sequel (that many sequels later) can be. But Dom being the bad guy is just NOT believable after 7 movies of him being all "ride or die" for his family. So this is either a plot in which he's being forced, which seems obvious so there's no point in even trying to make us think he's bad, or if it's not and he really did go bad (which I doubt),

Also I love Theron, she was badass in Mad Max, but this looks like it'll be a Razzie-worthy performance.

Obvious plot is obvious...

Soooo Charlize clearly convinces Vin she will murder happily retired family man Paul Walker (only needing to show a picture of him so he's still involved with the plot without having him be in the movie), unless Vin helps her commit a string of crimes...which is CLEARLY a ruse to break Statham out of jail? ...that's GOTTA be the plot right?

Mark my words. Walker will be the catalyst.

For sure she has leverage over him, but I think they're gonna leave well enough alone. Would be in bad taste to use Walker as the leverage point.

Hmm, interesting theory. Might not be Walker specifically but focusing on Jordana Brewster and their son.

I have a hunch that the real goal here is to offer a scenario that allows Jason Statham to become a semi-regular character, like a Joker or Blofeld type. Charlize is likely just the distraction they need to rationalize something as stupid as letting Shaw out or prison.

This is a perfect example of what is wrong with trailers today.

Im in no way a fan of this franchise, I find it mildly entertaining, to say the least, but I would still like it if they saved just some of the plot, or what little surprises are in the movie until Im a able to watch it from my sofa. It stills seems to me, that a majority of the studios feel they cant sell their movies without putting out 3-4 trailers that show everything (just look at the recent Star Wars Rogue One trailers"! I can understand promoting smaller movies via more trailers, but

I can understand promoting smaller movies via more trailers, but giant franchises dont need it! Learn from the likes of JJ Abrams, look at the recent "War for the planet of the apes" stylish made trailer that does not give every plot and twist away (the second and the third likely will, but I wont watch them). Less is MORE Hollywood, if you present it right that is! Tsk, tsk, When will you learn.

I thought I read when filming first started that FF8 was going to be a lot smaller of a film, more grit and city-based (I think NYC?); this looks like they did the opposite, now outrunning a submarine in what looks like Antarctica or something, which sadly calls to mind Die Another Day... not feeling this one after this first trailer.

Everything about that seems uninspired. I know we don't know why Dom Terretto is a bad guy in this movie, but I can only imagine the reason is ham-fisted into the plot. I don't know about everyone else, but I'm ready for a Luke Hobbs (The Rock) spinoff movie and call it a day.

ill be honest, never was a big fan of this franchise either. Still haven't seen 7 yet but I will eventually. I just wanted to say that this trailer, in my opinion, makes it obvious that Dom is being forced to turn bad. The action looks way over the top, especially that harpoon/tug-of-car war scene. And i see The Rock has brought the tank from G.I. Joe 2 with him. Maybe ill see it after its theater run.

FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!111

These movies will inevitably keep getting stupider. There are only so many ways to twist this story, and they are quickly exhausting all possibilities. It will make a bajillion dollars regardless because the systematic dumbing down of the population works so well that this is the sort of entertainment they need nowadays.

Where to begin..

So Vin becomes the badguy and Statham (a harden criminal/terrorist) becomes good?? Y'know I can't help but think that its all going to be a convoluted ruse to bring down Charlize like:

Dom: Hey, you know i'd never turn my back on family. Sure I flipped Luke's car but if I could survive a bus crash so can he! How else was I going to infiltrate her gang? Yeah i could have told you but where's fun in that?

Letty: Killing bystanders and us being SHOT at was part of the plan??

Dom: Totally

Letty: Killing bystanders and us being SHOT at was part of the plan??

Dom: Totally (* smirks*)

Luke: Thats right! And i only went to prison to get Dekard because of his skillz and keep an eye on him during the mission! I knew he couldn't resist to take a swing at me!

Dekard: Wait, you mean..

Luke: Yup, we're tossing your ass back to the slammer. We're done here!

Dom: Remember.. Fa-mi-ly

Dekard: Motherfu- (*cell door clinking shut *)

Sean: Dude, not cool.

Luke: I'm sorry and you are..?

But since its F. Gary Gray's film I will (grudgingly) watch this because this might give him the respect thats long overdue.

Hate it? There are other movies you know.

This is a blockbuster action movie, not some high-brow, uber-intellegent examination of human nature some commenters apparently think it should be. It's all about being entertaining and fun, and if it delivers, I'm fine with it. Doesn't hurt if we put our brains on autopilot for 2 hours.

True, but thats kinda hard when the movie pretends to be some high-brow, uber-intellegent examination of human nature (ergo; family) and constantly fails.

if you really think the FnF franchise believes its a high brow uber intelligent examination of human nature, then you are clearly retarded. Family is about the easiest theme to translate to the big screen and it is relatively simple. By your thought process you must think that Reign of Fire is a metaphorical representation of the invasion of the Nazis in WW2 and the American invasion to save Battleground Europe.

Thats where you are so wrong about family (including dysfunctional ones) being easy to translate. I could write a Master Thesis write now but that would be too much for the intellectually challenged (aka fans of the series ... such as yourself) but i will summarise this as, you need to care about the characters first and these movies don't give us that opportunity when they perform superhuman feats; surviving head-collisions, shrugging gunshot wounds like its nothing, crashing on bonnets/roofs

Brian missing the days he was being shot at instead of focusing on his wife & kid and betraying his law-enforcement job TWICE ( as a cop and then as FBI) etc. etc. So i ask you again "How are we supposed to care for these assholes??" Theres no tension or vulnerabilities that it becomes boring when you already know they'll be fine. Don't get me started on the Laws of Physics.

As a result its so annoying when throw the word "family" around. Why can't they just call themselves "buddies"? now THAT is so much easier to translate.

btw for the Reign of Fire reference, wasn't it obvious?

Alright If you all feel the need to make me defend these movies.

I was never a fan of them due to them being dumb and me not really liking a lot of the actors. I reluctantly came around and watched 5-7 which took the franchise from crap to something actually fun. Of course the plot is going to be stupid and of course the action will be completely absurd, that's pretty much the entire point and it's why people go to see them. Frankly the last 3 were closer to what I wanted the Expendables movies to be than the actual Expendables Between the Rock having

Frankly the last 3 were closer to what I wanted the Expendables movies to be than the actual Expendables Between the Rock having probably his best role and Statham returning, I'm down for more of them (plus don't forget Helen Mirren is supposed to be in one of the next two).

They are running out of ideas

Dom is now the bad guy? Ok, so in the 4th Letty was the bad guy because of amnesia, and now Dom is?

This franchise is getting more and more retarded each year. Just look at HOW dramatic these movies have changed since the first one. The first one was a small scale car movie with a Point Break skin around it. Now they have turned into XXX, James Bond, Transporter, all rolled into one.

This is getting fucking stupid now. They go from being good drives to ALL being action stars.

Which is all for the best, because the Luke Hobbs character actually seems more and more interesting with each movie since Fast 5. Vin Diesel has become so redundant since the 4th movie, "this is our last mission" / "it's all about family".

Hobbs is the single best role the Rock has ever had. While he will never hold a candle to Arnold, these movies are as close as he has ever come.

It's fine that these films have an audience, but each new film just keeps getting more and more absurd. Should have honestly just stopped after Furious 7 due to Walker's unfortunate death.

These movies are all the same

They're so overdone at this point. If they had any respect at all, they would have ended it when Walker died. Can't decided which summer sequel is more pointless: this one, Transformers, or yet another Pirates movie. Another reboot of Spider-Man is also really pathetic for the lack of creativity it shows.

Well as much as I hate to be that guy I have to say that the only reason were getting another Spiderman is so Marvel can officially establish him within the rest of the continuity. I agree it feels redundant, I won't go see it, and frankly I would have preferred for the last two to have never happened If this was going to be the result.

Completely agree with you on the rest of them, although I will regrettably admit Pirates does have my interest.

The original is still my favorite. Love 5 and liked 6. Thought 7 was very mediocre other than statham. This looks more in line with 5 and 6.
